Diversity in EE Focus Group

You have a great opportunity to influence change in the Diversity Climate of the Department of Electrical Engineering! .

If you identify with any of the underrepresented groups within engineering (i.e. women, African Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, LGBTQ students, low-income students, and students with disabilities), and you are a continuing student (this is not your first quarter at the UW), we invite you to participate in a Focus Group with staff from UW Center for Workforce Development (CWD). We hope you will participate! If you have already confirmed your participation, thank you.

The focus group will only take one hour of your time and is in the EE Building. Questions will be asked about your experiences at UW, your perceptions of faculty and students, and suggestions for improvement. CWD will keep your responsesconfidential; the results will only be presented in aggregate form so that individuals cannot be identified in the final report.
The focus group session is scheduled for Wednesday, October 23, 2013 from 5-6pm, in EEB room M406. CWD will provide food and beverages during the session.
IMPORTANT: Please respond via e-mail to Cate Samuelson at: to let us know if you can participate. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Cate directly via email or telephone at 206-685-7012.
Thank you for participating - and making EE a better place for all,
